Los Angeles County Board of Directors meetings are reopening to the public for the first time since the early days of the COVID pandemic

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors held its first in-person board meeting in 2 1/2 years Tuesday, only to be bombarded with protesters inside and outside the hearing room.

Demonstrators gathered on the front steps of the Kenneth Hahn Administration Hall, many focused on eviction protection for county tenants.

Earlier this month, regulators voted to end the moratorium on evictions by the end of the year, but were considering a motion that would strengthen eviction defense services for tenants. Another measure would limit what landlords can ask prospective renters about their pandemic rental history.

“Renters in LA County need stronger protections because it’s really difficult for a lot of our tenants to stay in their homes when we have landlords who are harassing them,” Elizabeth Hernandez, a housing attorney, told the board members.

dr LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer and her team updated the board on the latest COVID-19 and monkeypox case rates, both of which continue to decline.

Ferrer pointed out that this time our vaccines are ahead of the competition.

“For the first time, we’re going to go into winter with a booster dose that’s actually aligned with what’s out there right now, which is going to give us a lot of protection,” Ferrer said. “But people have to get vaccinated.”

Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, who is involved in an alleged conflict of interest investigation being led by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, was the only supervisor who was not present in person. Cool attended from afar.
